Recent Feedback from Frugi Organic Clothing - Nov 18
Health and wellbeing in the workplace is very important to Frugi and Mike is developing some really interesting services to support that, so he's a natural partner for us. Mike himself is very knowledgeable, professional and accommodating; he's been a pleasure to work with. The massage taster sessions went down a storm! They were so popular in fact, that we will be doing more work with Mike next year!
